Yodobashi camera’s multimedia shop in AKIBA

TOKYO, Japan (AVING Special Report on ‘World Class Brand in Japan’) — <Visual News> The largest electronic products & digital device shop in Japan is going to open in front of Akihabara subway station in Tokyo in September 16th: Yodobashi camera’s multimedia shop. AVING reporters cover the story with vivid photo images.

By opening this shop, it seems that Yodobashi camera is going to enter into a full-scale competition with Bic Camera, the largest digital device distribution channel in Japan. We will see how this incident would affect Japanese digital device distribution channels in the future.
